A New Decade With New Security Solutions To Meet New Challenges  

Paxton launch brand new products and solutions to mark the start of a new decade. A decade where access control and video surveillance technologies are taken to the next level and the need for solutions that help protect people and premises are more relevant than ever before. 

Paxton originally started in 1985 when the company was founded by Sussex businessman with a passion for technology, Tony Ratcliffe. Since the days of eighties tech, Paxton have grown into an international security designer and manufacturer, by creating industry leading products that set the bar in a world of ever advancing technology.

This year Paxton are marking their 35th birthday by creating new, truly innovative products which reflect the technological advances, trends, and challenges that lay ahead for Paxton installers and end users.

Katie Millis-Ward, Divisional Director of Communications, said: “We are always thinking of the next solution we can bring to our loyal customers. We have a focus on simplicity and making the technology experience for both the installer and end customer hassle free. Right now, we are really listening and taking note of what is important to customers in these changing times. So many of the Paxton solutions available are the result of customers telling us what they’d like to see more of. We take on board their feedback and combine it with years of Paxton know-how and innovation to create some truly useful products that solve real life problems.”

Here is just a few of the latest, available now:

Net2 access control v6.03 - Paxton’s industry renowned access control system receives its latest software update enabling next level remote management for Net2 sites via smartphone app or web browser

Being able to access and secure a site remotely and easily is incredibly valuable. The latest update to the Net2 system* makes remote management and security of sites more straightforward than ever before - minimising the need for regular site visits and supporting social distancing. Installers can manage a system via web browser using Net2Online or using the smartphone app Paxton Connect. The new features join the existing remote management functionality of user administration, roll call, and reporting.

Steve Rowlands, Paxton’s Global Product Manager, explains: “We have been listening to customer feedback and this free software update packs in some fantastic new features for those who want to use Net2 remotely or manage their system on the go from Paxton Connect, our easy and convenient app.”

Next level remote management in Net2 via Paxton Connect app and Net2Online:

  • Lockdown - securing your site at the touch of a button and quickly disabling user access
  • Access Level Management - determines which site areas users can access
  • Advanced Door Control - opens a door directly from your device wherever you are
  • Timezones - automates access to control movement of people at specific times
  • Event Filters - quickly finds specific events to manage your site efficiently

*Paxton Connect and Net2Online are available to users of Net2 Pro only.

Paxton10 - combining next generation access control and video management on a single platform

Launched in the UK to widespread acclaim last year, Paxton10 has been developed meticulously over time. This month the system debuts in France, Germany & Scandinavia, with plans for a US introduction later down the line. The Paxton10 launch follows a period of in-depth research and engagement with installers to identify the features they feel most beneficial to them and their customers. Combining two classic elements of security, access control and video management, on one system, Paxton built on 35 years of access control expertise to diversify into cameras, launching the first Paxton cameras to the market.

Paxton’s Chief Sales Officer, Gareth O’Hara, said: “Using the latest technology to combine access events and video footage in one place, Paxton10 simplifies site management and security and offers customers something they’ve never seen before. We believe it is a game-changing system. From the feedback we have received so far, our installers have told us they are very excited about the direction we were going in with Paxton10, particularly with the new technology. People really understand the need for a unified platform in the mid-market.”
